Hiring rock stars in today’s competitive, remote-first world.

It’s tough to find good, loyal people. But if you want to grow your agency, it’s absolutely necessary. But how do you do it, especially in this competitive, remote-first world?

Long before the pandemic, Forge3 became a remote-first company. We have team members all across the country and often get asked about our hiring process. We share an inside look at how we do it and what we’ve learned along the way.

Art Betancourt, Principal and CEO at AEBetancourt, also joins us to share his recommendations from the front lines of his insurance recruiting business. What are candidates looking for in a career? What works best to attract talent? How important is the culture and public image of the agency? What can agencies do to become more attractive?

We talk about that and more on this month’s F3 Network session!

F3 NetworkWhat is F3 Network?

F3 Network is an exclusive client group just for agencies using ActiveAgency. It’s a place to connect, learn from one another, and uncover some of the best marketing strategies, tools, and success stories.

Each month, we have a loose agenda with some hot topics and sneak peeks, but we also want to keep it as interactive as possible. Think of it more like a friendly roundtable discussion than another one-way webinar presentation.
